Values concerning the conduct of science and the resulting outcomes for society can be both implicit and explicit in science classrooms. This chapter explores the implications, for teachers and students, of explicit discussion of values in science classrooms. In particular, research case studies are drawn on to consider the difficulties for science teachers in modifying pedagogy in order to embrace values explicitly.
